Pretty great. Needs 11s, 9s are too slack to keep things planted at the bridge.....

...but the short scale means they bend about like 9s, but I don't do big bends a lot, so whatever.

The neck is thicker than the Fender "modern C" but with the tiny 24" scale, it's kind of nice. My wife's Taylor GSM is similar in length, but with a thinner neck, and I think I prefer this way.

Sound is what I expected but I don't yet understand the utility of the rhythm circuit vs just running bridge pup when on the lead circuit. Wiring diagram shows lower caps on that end, but doesn't sound much different to me either with or without the treble cut on the lead. Can definitely see modding it to be like the Marr signature.
